Just for the record:

This seems to be based on the assumption that a) mobile phones don't 
have browsers (many of them do) and b) that each user has only one 
browser (many of them have installed (and use) more than one; many 
people don't even realize they have installed (and use) more than one 
because browsers and their components are used behind the scenes in all 
kinds of shapes and forms.
